The Story I've Been Writing

I've been writing a story on my spare time . Its about a girl that wants to run XC , but has never ran a race in her life . She joins anyway and gets laughed at . No one thinks she will ever amount to anything . In , Junior year she was barely able to run a mile without walking . After being just a thrower in track and field , she really gets commited to running when she figures out her uncle ( her favorite person in the world ) did XC. She starts by pushing herself by not walking when she runs a mile . She does that for about a week , she starts getting used to it and adds more and more miles , and really starts to enjoy what she is doing . After 1 whole month of off season , she checked her weight and had lost 15 pounds ! She has really started to slum down . She continues on with her hard training , and then school rolls around and that means so does XC . Senior year . The real deal . Everyone is annoyed that she came back after a very unsuccessful junior year XC season . They notice she really did slim down . Everyone gets lined up to jog ( depending on what they can do ) a few miles . Coach has her run just a mile and she fuses about it and tells the coach she can run more that just that but he just ignores her . She decides to listen to him , because he "knows" best . She is the first one done . Even though she ran less than most everyone , this is still a suprise to the coach , because he sent the longer distance people out sooner that the one mile people out , and plus , he expected she would have walked , he didn't know what to think . The first XC meet what not to succesful , she got 8th on the team out of 10 people . Every race leading up to state she did better and better . Finally at districes everyone's jaw drops when they see the little chubby girl ( used to be ) get 1st place , and not just 1st but way ahead of everyone behind her .
Finally , when she gets to state , she shows off her mad skills and get state champion. Everyone on her team is so surprised , it's almost insulting . She gets a huge plaque to remember this day . She gets excepted into a college to run at . After her season is over , and of course track , she starts trained for a marathon , and her school of course !
